The Office of Subsistence Management is currently seeking proposals for the upcoming 2024 Partners for Fisheries Monitoring Program (Partners Program) that strengthens Alaska Native and rural involvement in Federal subsistence management. The Partners Program is a competitive grant that is directed at providing funding for biologists, social scientists, and outreach/educator positions in Alaska Native and rural nonprofit organizations with the intent of increasing the organizations’ ability to participate in Federal subsistence management. In addition, the program supports a variety of opportunities for local, rural students to connect with subsistence resource monitoring and management through science camps and paid internships.
The notice of funding opportunity can be viewed on either www.grants.gov (search for notice of funding opportunity number F24AS00002) or the Partners for Fisheries Monitoring website (https://www.doi.gov/subsistence/partners). The deadline for applications is January 13, 2023.
The Office of Subsistence Management encourages all eligible applicants to apply. Contact Karen Hyer at the address listed below if you have questions during the application process. The Office of Subsistence Management will be hosting informational sessions via Zoom during the application period to inform new and returning applicants on the application process and requirements, discuss eligible activities, and go over the review panel and evaluation criteria. The dates and times for the informational sessions will be posted on the Partners for Fisheries Monitoring website.
